A Nationally Acclaimed
AAA Four Diamond New Hampshire Restaurant
While the roots of the Bedford Village Inn are in historic New England, the crown jewel of the property is the contemporary regional cuisine and warm hospitality – and the BVI Restaurant has earned myriad accolades distinguishing it as a nationally acclaimed New Hampshire restaurant. Three dining venues, the Dining Room, the Tavern, and Corks offer you a choice for whatever your mood.
Critical portions of the cuisine we serve at the Bedford Village Inn Restaurant come from numerous high-end local regional producers and farmers throughout the Bedford, New Hampshire area. Local produce means natural freshness. So the eggs that make your souffle’ so fluffy are plucked warm from a henhouse in Londonderry, as does the maple syrup drizzling down the best buttermilk pancakes around. And that nice thick slab of apple-wood bacon comes from “the north country” in Claremont. The chickens we use come from our neighbors to the west in Vermont. Dairy and seasonal cheeses come from some of the most uniquely named pet goats and blue-ribbon sheep we’ve had the pleasure of meeting.
Providing some of the best produce for a good part of the year are our neighbors at a cooperative organic farm in Litchfield. Seafood from the shores of New England in the North Atlantic, pork from Niman Ranch, and choice grain fed angus beef from the Midwest are all the best money can buy.
The BVI Restaurant boasts a full pastry and bakeshop where our Pastry Chef oversees production of all baked products served anywhere on the property – including your morning bread, hamburger rolls, and a variety of breads served at lunch and dinner – and, of course, desserts.
The BVI Restaurant offers a number of private dining possibilities for meetings, family dinners or special occasions. Please contact our sales department at 866.350.1660 for more information.

Executive Chef Peter Agostinelli can boast over twenty years of culinary experience in more than eight different restaurants. His love of food was founded early on in his grandfather’s kitchen here in New England. He claims that his style is grounded in the Italian style with a global infusion of technique and flavor. He further developed his craft at Newbury College and graduated with a Culinary Arts Degree in 1998.
Today Chef Agostinelli is the Executive Chef here at the Bedford Village Inn. His craft is outstanding and his philosophy for using only the best ingredients complements the quality standard here at the Inn.
"My love of food stems from my love of the ingredients used to prepare it. A perfect tomato or a beautiful piece of pork inspires me. When you are given the gift of something that so many people have had a part in growing or raising, it is the responsibility of the chef to do something with that item to honor it." – Peter Agostinelli
